2011 Business Awards of Distinction coming up

Awards sold out for last two years, organizers urge early buying

Campbell River’s business community is gearing up for the 2011 Business Awards of Distinction.

Set to take place at the Tidemark Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 24, the event celebrates and recognizes business excellence and the contribution of outstanding entrepreneurs to the community. The theme, ‘Success Beyond the Lemonade Stand,’ recognizes and honours the foundation, and fundamentals of business success.

The evening will feature a selection of gourmet appetizers and desserts as well as the Chamber’s signature cocktail, door prizes, a live auction, multi-media presentations, and a few surprises.

The highlight of the evening will be the Awards Ceremony featuring the presentation of the nominees and, of course, the announcement of the 2011 Business Awards of Distinction winners.

Tickets are on sale now at www.campbellriverchamber.ca or by calling the Chamber office at 250-287-4636.

“This is Campbell River’s most prestigious business event and has sold out the last two years so be sure to get your tickets now to be part of the excitement,” said event organizers.

The public call for nominations resulted in over 45 qualified nominees in seven award categories including, Micro Business, Small Business, Intermediate Business, Large Business, Young Entrepreneur, Business Leader of the Year, and Not-for-Profit of the year.

A panel of judges comprised of community and business leaders throughout Campbell River evaluated the nominations against award criteria to determine the winners in each category.

All nominees were also evaluated for the Family Friendly Award category and Environmental Sustainability Award category.

A complete list of nominees can be seen on the Chamber website at www.campbellriverchamber.ca.

Anyone from the community is invited to this year’s celebrations.
